I've never seen signs like that, I have to say that is a great idea, I really like those.

It's been a while since I've played Idlewild, I need to make it back up that way soon. Like the signs on the link, I bet those look great on the course!

I do agree that having something in your throwing line or peripheral vision could be distracting but I've yet to run into that.
i think some of where im coming from is a regional thing we have almost all natural teeboxes here so quite a few courses the tee sign marks the end of the tee so it has to be in the front .

tee signs near the end of the tee are trouble..people will complain about them being in view when throwing...but for me, i hate worrying about smacking my hand on one like i did in carloina at ecu..hard when you have a 7 ft wing span

The GREAT thing about the Idlewild signs that nobody knows...except after I tell you...everyone will know is....Houck did the graphics for us...but we ourselves printed the signs in the Boone County sign department. We printed them on the same reflective metallic material that stop signs are printed on and attached this sticky back metallic foil to stock sign material. Now...if some smuck damages one of our signs we can go to the sign department and print and create a new teesign. We also anchored the plexiglass to the sign using security bolts that require two specialty tools...one on top and one on bottom to remove the bolts.

Certain hole sponsors paid extra to have a copy of their tee sign sent to them. On some of these we printed on a glossy vinyl material used for banners..this makes an excellent material to frame and put on the wall.

Is that shot taken from the back of the tee looking towards the basket?

I.e. is the tee sign near the back of the tee or the front?

It is near the back...you are looking towards the basket.

I think they are kind of backwards but they are pretty enormous and level so it doesn't matter as much.

You can see the red tee ahead, it is a normal shoebox design.
